Top 5 Shows

Pick your top 5 shows, no cheating!

Just five!?

  • Game of Thrones
  • Star Trek: The Next Generation
  • Venture Bros. 
  • Gargoyles
  • The Office

1. Who is your favorite character in 2?

Oh man, so many to choose from.  For me it’s a passup between Cpt. Jean Luc Picard and Lt. Commander Data.  Picard is such a facinating and deep character who leads through wisdom rather than bravado and tenacity.  This isn’t to say he wasn’t capable of it.  Data of course is the Spock of TNG, as such his sweet naivete mixed with a positronic brain and a struggle to become more human made him an instant tie for the win in my opinion. 

2. Who is your least favorite character in 1?

Is it a contest?  Joffrey!  Followed by every Bolton ever.  

3. What’s your favorite episode of 4?

Probably any one of them featuring Puc (voiced by Brent Spiner who played Data in Star Trek).  His interactions and pranks on the various and far more serious characters of the show is a joy to watch, as is his the eventual twist episode where we see who he’s been impersonating the entire show. 

4. What is your favorite season of 5?

Probably 3, as that’s when the cast really seems to catch their stride and get comfortable with their characters.  Sometimes I enjoy watching the blooper reals more than the episodes as everyone is so genuine and obviously having the time of their lives. 

5. What’s your favourite relationship in 3?

The Monarch and Dr. Girlfriend.  They’re two goofballs with giant character flaws, well… mainly the Monarch, but it’s obvious they are perfect for each other.  Who doesn’t love a swinging villain couple where one has an abnormally deep voice and the other masquerades as a butterfly. 

6. Who is your anti relationship in 2?

Wesley and anyone.  I’m sorry, I know Will Wheaton is a good guy, but early star trek Wesley and his dating escapades are painful to watch.  Also on a side note, borg queen and Data from the movie franchise, was a totally creepy couple.  Please data, for the love of Q, don’t spinal tap that!

7. How long have you watched 1?

Ever since the first season came out.  Though recently I’ve been trying to catch up on any episodes I may have passed over in past years. 

8. How did you become interested in 3?

I was turned onto it by some friends of mine who run a movie and entertainment review podcast.  My love for Johnny quest was immediately capitalized on int he first episode, and I’ve been hooked ever since. 

9. Who is your favorite actor in 2?

Definitely Patrick Steward.  While both characters are about the same in my favorites list, Patrick has always been a child hero of mine.  The fact that he brings respect to the name Patrick is just a plus.

10. Which show do you prefer 1, 2, or 5?

2 will always win out as it’s not only a great series but also brings back memories of my mother and I sitting on the couch, eager to catch the next episode. 

11. Which show have you seen more episodes of? 1 or 3

3, by virtue that Venture Bros. has way more seasons than Game of Thrones. 

12. If you could be anyone from 4 who would you be?

A Gargoyle, any gargoyle.  The chance to be a giant winged loincloth wearing immortal who is also immortal, who could pass that up?

13. How would you kill off your fav in number 1?

I don’t think I could, but I’m sure George R Martin is busy thinking of a way. 

14. Would a 3/4 crossover work?

Yes, and it would be amazing!  Just put the monarch and Steve Carell in a room and see what happens.  Please?  Can we do this?  This should be a thing!

15. Pair two characters in 1 that would make an unlikely, but strangely okay couple

So many strange but awesome couples already exist it’s hard to make more.  If I had to choose it’d be Brienne of Tarth and Lord Commander Mormont.  Their sense of honor, massive prowess and mutual respect would be awesome to see around Castle Black.  Not sure how Brienne would get there, but I’m sure no one would be messing with her if she was. 

16. Over all, which show has a better cast, 3 or 5?

I love the office, but no one can hold a candle to Dr. Dugong…

17. Which show has a better soundtrack, 1, 4 or 5?

Game of Thrones wins this by a mile.  It’s theme song and the Reins of Castamere are enough to beat out the competition. 

18. Best ship from all of them?

I’m not really a shipper.  I prefer the relationships the writers already put into the show.

Banner Saga isn’t just a gorgeous game inspired by classic animation, it also has great female characters.  From the strong and independent Oddlief (pictured above) to the Kind hearted Allette, or the intimidating, sometimes terrifying, Yrsa.
Not only that, but all of them have practical clothing one would expect from a person who lived in the frozen wilderness.

She looks absolutely stunning!

Now that seems more like the physique a intergalactic bounty hunter would have.

That post of snow gifs from Frozen really blew up and in my activity page I’ve seen it reblogged with a lot of opinions on the film like how two characters looking alike is bad even if they’re sisters or how the indigenous people of Norway should be black.

Many also seem to have written off the…

As an animator myself I see the hand *pop* as deliberate.  Popping a drawing into a pose is a great way of emphasizing the motion and pose you are moving into.  I’m sure you can find thousands of examples in any Disney film 3d or 2d that do the exact same thing. 

I should also note, especially when going through 1930’s/1940’s Looney Tunes, that a lot of animation looks odd or even unnatural when slowed down or stepped through.  Animation isn’t the recording of reality but rather creating the illusion of life, and many animators will ‘cheat’ or rather push their drawings to better serve the animations.  Breaking elbows, stretch frames, popping drawings, are just some of the many tools that an animator will use at the detriment of any individual drawing to strengthen their animation as a whole.

Wow, I mean good effort on the trace, but a little credit for the original would have been appreciated.
